WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Officers with the Wilmington Police Department responded to an armed robbery at apartment B at 4014 Park Avenue around 10:40 p.m. Thursday.

According to the WPD, the 21-year-old victim was sitting on his front porch when two men holding a handgun came from the side of the apartment.

The victim told officers that the suspects walked up to the victim and told him to "give it up."

The victim responded by telling the suspects he did not have anything with him.

After hearing this, one of the suspects hit the victim in the face with the butt of the gun, knocking the victim unconscious.

When the victim regained consciousness, he ran upstairs to tell his roommates about the incident. The victim's roommate then ran downstairs to find the suspects in the living room of the apartment.

After being spotted, the suspects fled out of the rear sliding glass door.

The victim's roommate then looked outside to see where they had gone and saw a light blue Ford Crown Vic or a Mercury Grand Marquis with large rims circling the block.

The suspects were both described as black males and approximately 5'10"-6'0" in height. One suspect was approximately 230-250 pounds and wearing a red hooded sweatshirt and a red bandana on his face.

The suspects took the victim's wallet during the incident.

No arrests have been made.

The victim was taken to the hospital with a busted lip and a missing tooth.
